COPPER MOUNTAIN, Colo. — Shaun White qualified for slopestyle finals at the U.S. Grand Prix, guaranteeing himself the top-30 finish he needed to be eligible for the Sochi Olympics.

Less than a week after hurting his left ankle during a halfpipe contest, White tried a conservative first run, then added an extra revolution to his last jump on his second trip down the mountain. He scored 85.66 points to finish third in his heat and earn a place in the 16-man final Sunday.
